Mob Psycho 100
Genre: Comedy, Supernatural
Summary Kagamaya Shigeo alias Mob is a real Psychic. Despite his power he is rather a looser and has no friend or hobby. Discover his adventure in this other hilarious comedy by the same author as Onepunch Man.
My thought : Before Murata redraw Onepunch Man, it was already extremely popular online despite a sketchy art that a lot of people will probably dislike. That was because One comedies are really funny so I'm happy that another one of his title has been picked. First chapter that introduces fake psychic Reigen Arataka makes it a perfect start.
Art is tragically atrocious but the plot psychic schoolboy five chapters in is entertaining enough to keep me reading.
I'm used to such art so it doesn't bother me. And I think the author plays with it a little.
But yeah no cute boys in these one :-)
Well I'm not sure it is necessary since this is mainly a gag manga. A lot of them don't have super art level (and that is general to all comics, strip artists don't draw the same as super hero comic)

My mistake it seems it is a bit more serious than I expected first
ONE is really great story writer. He's taking a typical concepts adding something magical and makes really funny and epic manga. I really love this one, I didn't read original OnePunch-man so I can't compare it to that but I have read Makai no Ossan and I like this one way more than than Ossan. Reigen is my favourite character, gags with him are just so hilarious. The best moment so far was Mob joining Body Improvement Club (this guys are also great!), I laughed so hard in this moment.
So now the question is if our MC will fight this guy (forgot his name). Body Improvent Club will probably fail.. or.. I don't know with ONE we can see everything but I want them to lose cause it would be really nice to see Mob fighting him. Also this pictures at the end with stats of everyone from Body Improvent Club! Especially the guy with practically no eyebrows and too much forehead space
I'm glad people are starting to translate it, I've always wanted to know what it's about.
CH. 15 was hilarious! Seeing Teru becoming bald was something only this crazy author can pull during a fight...
Yes that was funny. Especially since he is particularly annoying. But what made me the most laugh in this chapter were the percentages.
I guess Dimple was not really completely exorcised. After all those chapters with him, I started to get used to him
And even if I understand that Mob is immune to psychic attacks, being crushed through a wall should affect him don't you think ?
This guy is so irritating! But he shined with his Teru Baldness 0%.
It's an interesting story, the characters are all kind of crazy and unique but it's unexpectedly wise in some parts.. Haha
These everyday updates are like what I look forward to in the morning, always there when I wake up. Bless the scanalators.
A lot of people get put off by the art, I think even though One's art is scribbly and stuff. He makes it interesting, because of the different gestures and expressions. It really fits what the story is about. It's better than art out there which is clean but dull in my opinion.

This One has a narration style which is very simple and puts a lot of speeches to draw more, that technique is used to draw less. Funny thing is an author who enjoys doing work.

The leader guy of the body improvement club is garness made chivalry
Made it up to 24, I like the brother kageyama r more though, entertaining and enjoyable plot and his wanting to help mob out and such and even protect him a bit. Hope he continues to get good involvement and actual powers.
